FACT - a thing that is indisputably the case. Something KNOWN to be true, something that absolutely CANNOT be argued against.
OPINION - a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. A judgment, viewpoint, or statement that is not conclusive.
So now that we have those two meanings cleared up imma say this here...
As individuals, we will often time ALWAYS disagree with each other on something, be it entertainment, political views, religions, sports, food, etc. We have our own ways of thinking, acting, and our own personal taste in things. NEVER should we parade around our own tastes and opinions as FACT, because it (by definition) is NOT..unless it IS.
If I said, Batman V Superman
sucks balls, then that is my opinion(as well as a VAST amount of people, just keepin it 100
), which then is a 'popular opinion'. HOWEVER, it is NOT a FACT.
It is NOT a fact because there are MANY people *DC fanboys*
who enjoyed that movie and herald it as the BEST Super Hero film ever and they are not 'wrong' or 'right' because Whether a movie, music, video game or something like THAT, is "Bad" or "Good" is complete subjectivity.
I personally think The Dark Knight
is probably the best superhero film ever made so far,(an opinion that is also very popular) but thats NOT a fact.
Last year there was the newest debate in the infamous 'Marvel Vs DC nerd debates. It was Captain America: Civil War
vs the Batman v Superman
film: Which film is better?
I saw ALL the debates, flame wars, YouTube vids over this debacle. Funny stuff!
Its ALL personal taste at the end of the day, despite the VAST popular opinion that BvS sucked and that CW was better, lol
When I give my opinions, I try not to come across as parading it around as a fact(which is why often times I include 'IMO')
and I get irked alittle(just alittle
) when people do, especially the ignorant ones. Then want to give IMO
, bullshit reasons(or even NO reason at all) as to why they believe it to be a fact.. especially(depending on the topic) when there are FACTS and Evidence that support the polar opposite opinion and would make the opposing opinion of the topic at hand lean more towards being a Fact.
I don't mind you giving your argument as to why you believe such to be the case or why you personally prefer this over that, and that you may want to help sway a person to sharing your opinion, but PLEASE, don't give BS claims and clearly false info despite being shown the true info. Id take you just being a fanboy or a hater as the reason for you opinions over 'willful ignorance' anyday.
False info spreads and leads many astray.
If there are ANY communities or fandoms I hate false info spread around its: 1# Christianity. If anyone says Christianity has a bad name these days, Ill tell you EXACTLY why; because there is SO MUCH false info and misunderstandings surrounding my Lord and his words, as well as people who claim themselves as Christians, but are not (AT LEAST) attempting
to act Christ-like AT ALL. We are not perfect, but it should not be from lack of trying. In the Bible, this was ALL foretold as events of The Last Days
, But THAT is a topic for another day(should there be one).
My personal Others include: Dragonball franchise, Mortal Kombat franchise, Street Fighter franchise, Michael Jackson, Bruce Lee, Martial Arts, Marvel, DC, African American history, and a few others.
These are topics I LOVE and consider myself VERY knowledgeable and more or less credible in. I don't know EVERYTHING, but I know MUCH and im always learning from my peers.
Your opinions can be whatever; You Like Michael Jackson or you Hate him, I don't care which personally, because again, its an opinion, but sometimes I am curious to know why, and if its based on false info, then to be blunt-- Ill have to school you...in a civilized manner of course, After you hear the TRUTH(with evidence provided), and you still don't like him, then Fine.
This goes for the other things as well, If you say a character from MK or DBZ sucks, or that DBZ sucks in general, thats YOUR opinion, its not a fact...and FAAR from it.
Actually, the Only character in lets say....Mortal Kombat
, who I'd say for a FACT sucks, is Hsu Hao
, LOL. Here's why- Its a FACT that the creators(Vogel, Ed Boon and Co from Netherrealm studios) said they regret making him and don't like him at all, actually had him permanently killed off in MKX comics, and he has had no 'playable' inclusion in any game past MK: Armageddon. So when your CREATOR says you suck, that IMO makes it Official; YOU SUCK! Lol
Thats like God saying you suck, if HE said you suck, then its a FACT. LMAO! But God wouldn't say that of you personally, your ACTIONS ?, sure--but not of YOU.
But if you say "Sub-Zero, Goku, Ryu, Kang, or Vegeta, or whoever etc, sucks and thats a fact", NO its not, and there isnt a bit of evidence to support it as a FACT. An Opinion ? sure. A FACT, NO. Especially popular chars like Scorpion or Kang or Goku or Ryu or chars and franchises with HUGE followings.
I would say Yamcha of the Dragonball franchise for a fact sucks too, but Yamcha WAS useful once upon a time...LOL And some people still very much like Yamcha, and he is actually more popular now than ever because
he sucks and people LOVE to Meme that. LOL
Ive been in plenty of debates in person and online, and im ALWAYS open to hear everyone's Opinions
, but when you try to state your opinion as FACT, on top of giving BS or false info as reasoning for your opinion, especially against a guy who knows the INs and OUTS of the topic at hand, im sorry but it makes you lose credibility in my eyes and then after presented with REAL facts and supporting evidence, you choose to be willfully ignorant, then IM done.Point is, Your taste and your opinions(on trivial matters, no less) are just THAT; OPINIONS and should remain and be intended as that. And people need to learn to respect and respectfully disagree with opinions.
"Batman V Superman was a horrible movie and thats FACT!!"
No, its NOT a fact......................................but it is a VERY popular Opinion, LOL
